Yes. All 5K registration forms include liability waivers.

The course for a 5K is 3.1 miles. 

As a reminder, this is a fun, celebratory event for our participants and not a competitive race. While our fastest 5K participants will complete the course in 25 minutes, most cross the finish line in 30-50 minutes. Everyone who participates is encouraged to walk, roll, push, run or skip at their happy pace!

First, we understand that life happens, and circumstance might make it impossible to attend.


We strongly encourage that all participants attend and complete the 5K, as it is the goal that teams are preparing for all season long! It’s the ultimate opportunity to build confidence through accomplishment. Remember, this is the first 5K event for many – including coaches, participants, friends and family members. We are in it together!

Yes. Girls on the Run 5K events are for everyone! All participants can walk, run, push or roll safely and at their own happy pace. 

If you or your child need accomodations for the 5K, please contact us at  [email protected] so that we can ensure a great race day experience. 

For safety reasons, every runner must wear a race bib. Girls on the Run Rockies ensures every participant is running with an adult (such as a family member, friend, or coach!). Our races take place on closed courses with staff and volunteers to help keep runners safe and on course.
